Explore the Oddities of This Strange Realm of Mine
One of my favorite things about the wonderful world of indies is the range of style and topics small developers can play with. While larger companies tend to stick with a formula, truly independent developers can do odd things to make a weird point, and leave it up to the players to decide whether the story works. Enter This Strange Realm of Mine, a 2D pixelated adventure in psychological horror. If you’ve ever wanted to play an old-school first person shooter that inexplicably involves a sloth lounging on a rooftop, this is the game for you.
In This Strange Realm of Mine, players traverse a strange world in their afterlife. There are friends to be found among the horrors of the dead, spiritual guidance for lost souls, and creatures testing the theory of whether the dead can be killed again. Talk, stab, and shoot your way to understanding in a game the developers describe as both horror and ‘feel-good’. Windows players can check it out on Steam.
